Today we celebrate the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the United States Supreme Court with hope and the recognition that an outstanding jurist will become the first African-American woman to be appointed to our highest court. While it is amazing that it took until 2022 for this ceiling to be broken, it is also clear that there are numerous other outstanding candidates who were considered and are waiting in the wings to be elevated in the future. Judge Jackson brings outstanding qualifications and length of judicial experience to be an excellent Justice. Her patience and temperament were demonstrated as she fielded questions from some Senate Judiciary Committee members that were a disappointment to see in this confirmation process. We celebrate Judge Jackson’s historic confirmation, knowing that she will be a great addition to the Court and that her appointment is a symbol that the highest positions are available to all.
